The Best and Unexpected of Rome Tours and Attractions

Rome tours and attractions will arguably bring you more history mile for mile than any other European tour. The Coliseum alone is so breathtaking and fascinating to see that you'll think you've seen the ultimate in Rome tours and attractions already.

However, a guided tour of the city will bring you face-to-face with monuments and sights in places you'd never expect to find them. A stroll down an unimpressive street in Rome ends with the beautiful Trevi Fountain, where you'll be encouraged to toss a coin and make a wish. On the outskirts of the city, what you might mistake for an abandoned field is actually the exact spot where chariot races were held. Look closely and the ground still bears the scars.

A memorable part of your trip to the Eternal city will be a visit to the Roman Catacombs. The ancient Christian and Jewish burial sites were built underground, just outside of the city and along its roads.

Other sights you'll see on Rome tours and attractions include the Pantheon, a large pagan temple, and the Arts Museum. Check out Piazza Navona, a charming square that houses the Fountain of the Four River. Don't forget about Bernini's masterpiece and St. Peter's Basilica, which should all be seen with a Rome travel guide so you gain the most information!
